Marian University Pilgrim's Guide

Conveniently located 15 minutes from downtown Indianapolis, Marian University seeks to intentionally recruit, house, feed, and transport youth and chaperones to the NEC. In journeying with us, your youth will experience everything that the NEC has to offer. Our hope for your youth is to have a profound encounter with Christ and His Church and find their own eucharistic mission in the world. Below you can find all the details for how you can participate in this opportunity.


High school youth (current freshman through seniors) who are faith-filled leaders within your parish community, and any adult(s) who serves as a youth minister(s) for a parish/diocese.
